Nine Reasons to Investigate War Crimes Now

In their article for The Nation, Jeremy Brecher and Brendan Smith, give nine good reasons why they feel Georgie's Administration should be investigated for war crimes.

1. World peace cannot be achieved without human rights and accountability.
2. The rule of law is central to our democracy.
3. We must not allow precedents to be set that promote war crimes.
4. We must restore the principles of democracy to our government.
5. We must forestall an imperialist resurgence.
6. We must have national consensus on the real reasons for the Administration's failures.
7. We must restore America's damaged reputation abroad.
8. We must lay the basis for major change in U.S. foreign policy.
9. We must deter future U.S. war crimes.
